The Halcyon Archipelago of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, humorless population of 25.296 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Four Capitals. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 5,520 trillion Koronas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,221 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Ko-oren, the country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, and the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 468th in the world and 1st in Anaia for Healthiest Citizens, with 43.17 bananas ingested per day.
